Origin of the name URIEN.
Etymology of the name URIEN.
Meaning of the baby name URIEN.


URIEN.  Arthurian.  The Welsh form of Uranius (q.v.), meaning "heavenly."  George ("husbandman") sometimes represents Urien.  This is the name of an actual historical king of Rheged who came to be incorporated into Arthurian legend.  Also see Uriens.

... Then Sir Ewaine said unto the knight, "Sir Unknown Knight, this knight, my companion, is Gawaine, son of King Urien of Gore, and I am Ewaine, the son of King Lot of Orkney.  Now, I crave of thee that wilt make thyself known unto us in like manner. (The Story of King Arthur, Pyle, 1909)

... Uranius makes its appearance among the Welsh as Urien, a somewhat common name at one time.  "Brave Urien sleeps upon his craggy bed;" but Camden, or some one else before him, thought proper to identify it with George, which has led to its decay and oblivion. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
